So news broke that the much anticipated Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory, is going to briefly feature a Lesbian couple. At least that’s what the rumor is. Now, as a rule of thumb Christian evangelicals, of late, seem to either care too much about one thing and care too little about others. In this instance, I have the hunch we will boycott the movie and express outrage over the normalization/glorification of an unbiblical lifestyle; and then fail to do anything productive about it in the long run.
The main issue with what Disney/Pixar is doing here is that by presenting a lesbian couple as normative, they are presenting something which God reckons as evil, and endeavoring to normalize it. Furthermore, although the homosexual couple doesn’t seem to have a key plot role, the problem is that they don’t have a key plot role! There’s nothing sinful in story-telling about portraying sin in order to show it as sin. There is something wrong with presenting sin as not sin. We’re told to flee immorality, not doll it up. I take this to be the real problem if indeed Pixar is trying to pander to the GQ BLT crowd. [Read more…] about Finding Morality
